Driving North Rosedale Park, Detroit, MI 48223

DSCF1287a2

North Rosedale Park is in Detroit, MI 48223 in the NW section of where Grand River (M-5), the Southfield Freeway (M-39) and Fenkell (5 Mile) meet.  This neighborhood is mostly middle and upper-middle-class homes owned by white collar professionals. I grew up directly east on the other side of Southfield Freeway in a lower-middle-class neighborhood.

North Rosedale Park is featured on the Experience Detroit website as part of their Historic Neighborhoods Driving Tour.

From their site:

"North Rosedale Park is our favorite of the three enclaves that make up the Grandmont / Rosedale Park community on Detroit's west side.  This neighborhood consists of close to 1700 well-built English and French Tudors, American colonials, and arts and crafts bungalows.  The neighborhood park is the only privately owned neighborhood recreation "facility" in the City of Detroit and holds a number of year-round activities including art shows, concerts, and other events.  Residents include well-known sports figures, artists, musicians, and professionals."

So... Sit back and take a leisurely drive with me through North Rosedale Park. We'll be cruising at a speed of about 10 mph.
